The inability of predictions by fast-rising social media sensation, Oswald, to materialise by the end of 90 minutes of football, has infuriated many social media users.

The punter topped the trends for his accurate sports predictions which won him over ¢5,000 in sports betting on Wednesday night.

This feat attracted the attention of many after punters on Twitter who then looked up to him for the next prediction with the hope of winning big. As promised, Oswald created a Telegram channel with over 40,000 members where he dropped his next batch of football predictions on Thursday.

Believers also complied and placed their bets accordingly.

But as one saddened twitter user would describe the rather unfortunate outcome, “it ended in tears”.

Some are also contemplating whether the whole move may have been a well-orchestrated publicity stunt to drive interest in the industry.
